Sadie Robertson is revealing why she still plans to vote for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in the midst of sexual misconduct allegations being brought against him.

Earlier this month, a 2005 video footage of Trump saying that his fame allowed him to behave in what can be characterized as sexual assult toward women and "do anything," surfaced. After the video, first posted by The Washington Post, a dozen women stepped forward to bring sexual misconduct allegations against the presidential hopeful.

Still Robertson, the 19-year-old "Duck Dynasty" star who is currently spearheading a nationwide motivational conference called the "Live Original" tour, spoke to about her decision to vote for Trump despite the growing scandal surrounding him.

"I would say yes, I would be voting for Trump. It doesn't mean that I agree with everything he says or that he's a moral person, but in the end it comes down to two people," she said. "For me and my family, we agree with what Trump wants to do with America."

Robertson's family, who stars in A&E's "Duck Dynasty," have been vocal about their vote for Trump in the past. Her father, Willie Robertson, the CEO of duck hunting merchandise brand Duck Commander, previously served as a keynote speaker in the Republican National Convention.

When addressing the RNC crowd in July, Willie revealed why he was on "the Trump train."

"Let me tell you why I've been on the Trump train from the beginning. See, when you're from the South and you grow up with rednecks, there are some occasional disagreements," Robertson said at the Republican convention. "Sometimes those disagreements turn into fisticuffs but anytime I was ever in a bad spot I always knew my brothers would have my back. And today in a lot of ways America is in a bad spot and we need a president who will have our back."

While Willie admitted that Trump will not always say things that please people, he explained why that didn't bother him.

"Now he may not always tell you what you want to hear. You may not always agree and he may not always be politically correct but when your father is Phil Robertson, I'm used to that ok," he said. "But I tell you this, Donald Trump will always, always tell you the truth as he sees it. And that's why we can trust him to make America great again as our next president."

While Sadie is not as involved in the Trump campaign, she previously told Entertainment Tonight why she is putting her trust in the Republican candidate politically.

"I just feel like I align most with his beliefs and views and I trust him," she said. "...We're down to the two [candidates]. So it's kind of time to make a stance."
